Kelly Ripa doesn’t flop back into bed after hosting “Live!” The 50-year-old talk show queen today proved that the grind carries on all day, with her 2.8 million Instagram followers getting both a sneak peek into her energetic bedroom workout routine plus her stunning $27 million NYC home. The blonde, who tends not to share the sweat sessions too often, was pumping iron, squatting deep, and affording a sensational view of the body she called a “Peter Pan” one last year. Check it out below.
Scroll for the workout action. Kelly, who turned 50 on October 2 and today stunned fans in a tight slit dress as she was joined on-set by co-host Ryan Seacrest, was back to the spandex. The former ballerina who last year showed off her pointe skills, was seen deep squatting and lifting dumbbells while in all-black leggings and a matching tank.
“ALL IN. FULL OUT,” Kelly wrote, saying: “Welcomg to the bedroom/gym” – COVID has affected the former “All My Children” just like the rest of us.
Kelly, who said: “That’s right!” as she admitted: “I live here now in the gym/bedroom,” then promised that the Obé fitness brand she was promoting wasn’t a paid ad. Quite simply, the mom of three digs them so much, she fancied giving them a shout-out.
Kelly does, however, front Persona Nutrition and credits the tailored supplements brand for getting a good night’s sleep. And this girl gets up early, with five days a week on “Live!” seeing her up at 5.30 or 6 a.m.
Kelly comes pint-sized, but the leggy star whose stiletto looks never fail is a muscle machine. In 2019, Kelly spoke to The Cut as she broke down everything from her complicated morning coffee routines to her marriage to 1996-married husband Mark Consuelos.
“My body looks like Peter Pan no matter what I do. I’ve never been a va-va-voom woman,” she said, adding: “I like to take AKT — which is cardio-based dance classes — about four to five days a week between 3 and 5 p.m. And I like to do SoulCycle on the weekends.”
Kelly made major headlines last month for welcoming the big FIVE-OH and reminding fans that age is but a number. While “Riverdale” hubby Mark was some 3,000 miles away shooting the CW series he stars on, kids Lola, Joaquin, and Michael were able to kit out Kelly’s luxurious home hallway with a giant floral and candles display, plus plenty of gifts.
Kelly herself then took to Instagram to share the moment, writing: “Thank you! Yes you, and everyone who made me feel so loved. I am 50. There. I said it ????? #birthday #50.”
